Julie Neises

Sculptor, Founding Artist

Julie began sculpting the figure in 1979 at Indiana University in South Bend while working on her teaching degree and has never looked back.

Julie is a retired teacher. She has taught at every grade level and is currently an art instructor at Mishawaka High School. She is a member of the Hoosier Salon and Associate Member of the National Sculpture Society.

"I really enjoy modeling the human figure, capturing the nuances of the most delicate ins and outs of the form and the psychological power of a glance or gesture."
